Company History

Imperial Walk-in Coolers was started in 1970 to serve the commercial refrigeration industry by manufacturing the insulated panels used to build walk-in coolers and freezers. Commercial refrigeration remains a primary focus today. The company was started by Al Zell, who maintained single ownership for many years, and as of 2009 we are a 100% employee-owned ESOP company.

Over time we have continually refined our products using the most up to date materials and engineering expertise to provide world class products that withstand the most extreme temperature and weather conditions on earth, and perform as cold storage facilities, controlled scientific environments, pharmaceutical and chemical storage, food processing plants, and many other uses.

Imperial Manufacturing and WA Brown joined companies in May 2012. Now the Imperial Brown company serves your needs from both West Coast and East Coast factories.

As an ESOP, every person working in the company participates and has a stake in company success. That personal participation shows daily in the pride we take in each product we deliver. We also have a fierce loyalty to our customers and we work hard to ensure they receive the finest product, whether it’s a new Imperial Walk-in cooler or freezer, a refrigeration system, or a replacement door. We are rewarded through our customers’ comments on their satisfaction with our work.
